Research Institute Contracting Group

Contract specialists are responsible for the development, review and negotiation of contracts that support research.  This work includes assuring that all research, legal, regulatory, financial and other business requirements are reflected in each contract.  Similar analysis and review is conducted for grants and awards.  All such agreements are reviewed by the contract specialist before they can be presented to an authorized corporate official for execution.  Under no circumstance may anyone other than such authorized official execute research related agreements on behalf of Children's Hospital Colorado, the University of Colorado Denver, or in their individual capacity. Research contracts include confidentiality agreements, clinical trial agreements, data use agreements, material transfer agreements, research service agreements and other research-related agreements.

The contract specialists work closely with the research team and other members of the Research Institute to assure that all contracts are processed in a timely manner.  As necessary, the senior contract specialist will coordinate with General Counsel and business partners to assure that contractual provisions comply with the law and company policy.
